Abstract

Members of the genus Fusarium are ubiquitous fungi uncommonly associated with infection. Disseminated fusariosis typically occurs in neutropenic hosts and carries a high mortality rate. We present a case of disseminated fusariosis that is unique in terms of its relative lack of symptomatology despite documentation of fungemia and pulmonary nodules. A summary of the literature is also presented.
